Colorado-Common-Grant-ApplicationThe Foundation’s online grant application follows the Colorado Common Grant Application (CGA) format. Please review all of our eligibility requirements & guidelines, funding areas & restrictions, and past grants before starting an application. We encourage you to call, email or submit a letter of inquiry (LOI) if you have any questions.

Applications must be submitted online (preferred) or received in our office by 5 p.m. on the deadline date. Faxed or emailed applications are not accepted. If a deadline falls on a weekend, the application is due the preceding Friday.

Due to the large volume of grant applications we receive, our review process takes about four months. Your application will be assigned to one of our staff members for review. We will contact you if we have any questions, need additional information or to schedule a site visit. We will communicate the board’s decision about your proposal by mail in late May or late November, depending upon the grant cycle in which you’ve applied.
